Maths Mate Term 3 Sheet 4

Maths Mate Term 3 Sheet 4 empty

Predict: I thought this would be about addition.

Clarify: I had nothing to clarify.

Find the big picture: What is the value of the last string of beads?

Solve:

First I tried some different combinations for each string, but none of them worked with any of the others.

Then finally I found out that if the red bead was 5,the dark read beads were 2 and the white bead was 7, it added up to 16.

The next string was 2+2+7+7, and that’s 18.

The 3rd string was 5+2+7+7, and that was 21.

Finally, the last string had 3 red beads and 1 white bead, so that’s 5+5+5+7 and that’s 22! so 22 is the answer.

Question 22: The sum of three consecutive whole numbers is 96. What are the three numbers?

Predict: I thought this problem would be about addition.

Clarify: I had nothing to clarify.

Find the big picture: What three consecutive whole numbers make 96?

Solve:

First I worked out that the numbers all had to be 30+? because 30+30+30 is 90.

Then I worked out what 3 consecutive make 6. It was 1,2 and 3.

So 31+32+33 is 96, so that’s the answer.

Summary: I used my prior knowledge.
